If it exposes the lies so we can make fun of cultie spokespeople, it's sooo worth it.
But what counts as a group? A Volunteer Minister having a regular meeting every month that no-one comes to — is that a group?
Here's a good summary from hartley patterson and a link to the historical breakdown of missions and orgs.
- 27 countries have at least one Org no change from 2007.
- 23 countries have missions only, down 7 from 2007.
- Most countries show little change in the number of service units. As noted in our previous surveys however, a few countries are different.
- Russia has two Orgs supporting a lot of Missions, but growth has reversed (30 down from 73) perhaps due to competition from Rons Org.
- Italy also has a lot of Missions, the number seems to have stabilised.
- Several other countries experienced a big growth in Missions such as Hungary, Slovakia, Taiwan and Ukraine but these like Russia appear to be in decline.
- In the USA the number of Missions has now fallen after a decade of steady increase.
- Orgs: 128 (no change) Missions: 322 (down 61 from 2007)
Let's also not forget that 3 people can make 6 groups.
And 12 people can make 4095 groups.
WTF is a life improvment centre?
Is that below a mission?
Great piece of research DCAnon. Thank-you.
We critics had better get busy and figure out what we can do to stem this torrential expansion that the Co$ is experiencing.
You are still missing the Santa Barbara Org....something I mentioned to you in the past.
I have since actually driven by it and it is open.
If it wasn't in the Scientology.org finder when I did the list, it's not on there though I'll have to look further. There's several sites like Gold Base that aren't listed and several that are listed but are now closed. I'm gathering up all the info from people and then will do another run through the Scientology.org listing in a few months to keep this up to date. I'm hoping they add and delete things on their end too to be current, it's in their best interest to make sure people know how to find them if they want.
It was on the locator when you were first working on this list and you insisted it was closed. It has been there for years....
I called them and some of the others for you...
You may have missed some others too.
